Ivydale, West Virginia
I am married and a father of 2. I love to hunt, fish, trap, hike, rock climb, camp, garden and cook. By trade I am a welder, but I also make knives and am a semi-professional blacksmith. My family and I live on a self-sustainable homestead. We raise a big garden of heirloom vegetables. I collect antique varieties of apple, pear, plum, quince, cherry, mulberry and grapes. We raise meat rabbits, chickens for meat and eggs and we raise 2 breeds of pigs. I make my own beer, cider, perry and wine. I also have a medicinal garden from which I make a lot of herbal remedies. I use organic, self sufficient practices with everything I raise to eat and plan on teaching this to my kids as they grow up.
